This 9-mile byway encompasses the entire length of State Route 254 in Lorain County and passes by more than one hundred historic homes that date back to the 1830s. More than 12,000 years ago, when Lake Erie was larger than it is today, what is now State Route 254 was the lake's shoreline. The roadway follows the northernmost ancient beach ridge across Avon and Sheffield at a range of 670 to 690 feet above sea level.
